Our expert will gladly work with you to find the most appropriate injection moulding tool design for your project.
There are so many practical uses for our plastic injection moulding tooling. Here are some examples of how we add value to businesses Australia-wide.
Thin Wall Food Packaging
Thin-wall packaging products require tooling that is extremely precise to achieve the light weight products and fast cycling production that this sector demands. We design plastic food packaging in a variety of shapes and sizes to satisfy the needs of the FMCG industry. This includes plastic tamper evident containers, IML products and more.
Tooling for medical products has its own unique requirements to meet the needs of hospitals, medical clinics and other healthcare facilities that rely on plastic products. We can meet your requirements and provide certifications you may need for FDA or the TGA in regards to tooling.
Precision Engineering Products
The automotive and other engineering industries often require the most precise and reliable tooling. We are the trusted injection moulding tooling supplier to many high-tech global organisations.
Sneddon and Kingston manage all the details of your plastic injection moulding tooling. We pride ourselves on the workmanship that goes into every mould we produce. Whether it’s a prototype tool or simply a test for a small quantity of parts and components, we can help validate your tooling and product design prior to the mass production stage. Speak with one of our tooling engineers to learn more.
What is tooling for injection moulding?
Injection moulding tooling is considered the heart of injection moulding. Plastic injection moulding tooling is essential for both simple and complex applications. In addition, the tooling design determines the quality of the parts produced through the injection moulding process.
The primary purpose of a tooling design is to create a product that has high manufacturability. For that, it requires a high-quality process. The process should be simple but efficient, easy to operate and maintain, long-lasting, cost-efficient, and meet all specifications.
As one of the experienced plastic injection moulding manufacturers in Australia, we have a team of expert injection moulders. We have the required qualification and expertise in all aspects of plastic product manufacturing. As a result, we can produce high-quality tooling designs and products.
What tooling is used for plastic parts?
Plastic part tooling is a means of producing custom moulds for plastic parts. The components produced from the plastic part tooling process are functional and affordable as they come from custom-made plastic moulds. It helps in shaping liquid plastic within the injection moulding machine. In addition, the resultant plastic parts have a perfect surface finish and precise fit.
There are various tooling options used for plastic parts, including:
Plastic Injection Moulds – This tooling is an economical option. It is ideal for the mass production of plastic parts. It uses custom steel moulds placed in injection moulding machines that inject melted plastic into these moulds.
Plastic Compression Moulds – Plastic compression moulds tooling includes custom steel moulds placed inside a hydraulic press. It pressurises and shapes heated plastic.
Plastic Blow Moulds – This tooling type is like injection moulds, except that compressed gas or air blows into a piston to push each plastic part out of the mould. In addition, it’s a budget-friendly option as it is faster than other tooling types.
Steel Blank Moulds – This tooling type uses steel moulds but has no moving parts. This method is mainly employed in creating blow moulds or plastic injection moulds.
How much does it cost for plastic injection moulding tooling?
Injection moulding is one of the most popular processes for plastic manufacturing. It is a cost-effective, repeatable technology that produces superior quality plastic parts for large series production. In addition, the exact cost of plastic moulding tooling depends on various factors.
Understanding cost ranges associated with plastic injection moulding requires a thorough analysis of the process. The price varies based on equipment cost, mould tooling cost, injected material cost, labour service cost and many other variables like part design, part size, production volume, part volume and cavities, etc.
